2021: Kia's Halo EV Affordably Priced
High Performing Halo EV 2021
Kia's EV Concept "Vision"
Setting New Standards at Affordable Price
Kia plans to launch a high performance, all electric vehicle - the Halo - in 2021. Kia is promising the EV will have long range, very high performance and ultra quick charging. And, very importantly, they say is will be reasonably priced at considerably below the cost of Tesla, Mercedes and BMW EV's. Kia's goal is to establish its electric vehicle leadership by setting a very high bar in the EV global industry. Being all-electric, the Halo will have zero emissions.
Halo Crossing Boundaries
The Halo is expected to blend the boundaries between sedans and SUV's. Part of the mindset behind the Halo is the EV concept car Vision, that Kia showcased at the recent Geneva Auto Show. Kia won't launch the Halo until 2021 because they're waiting for parent company Hyundai's new, all electric platform that it wants to use to build the group's electric vehicles on across all Hyundai brands.
The Halo appears to be a spectacular piece of EV technology. The target range on the "reasonably priced" vehicle is 310 miles. A new 800 V battery system would allow the EV to recharge from a level of 20% to 80% in 20 minutes. Kia executives believe that the Halo will redefine and enhance consumers' perception of the company and its technologies. By 2025, Kia says it will be offering 11 new EV's.

New Invention: Tablet Toothpaste "Change Toothpaste" Source: Change Toothpaste Potentially Cuts 900 Million Plastic Toothpaste Tube Throwaways Per Year Tubes of toothpaste aren't something you think about but their impact on the global environment is hugely negative. 900 million toothpaste tubes are discarded into oceans and landfills globally every year. Importantly, it takes 500 years for them to breakdown, which means virtually every toothpaste tube created is still discarded someplace in the world. And, the tubes, which contain multiple layers of plastic, polymers and resins, can't be recycled. A company headquartered in Edmonton, Alberta Canada just came up with a solution in the form of tablet toothpaste. "Paste with No Waste" Entrepreneurs Mike Medicoff and Damien Vince are the inventors and founders of CHANGE Toothpaste. Their tablet toothpaste is an all natural vegan substance that works just like toothpaste but has no harsh chemic
